Are you looking for a unique dog that will not only keep you on your toes but also keep you laughing? Well then Sasha is for you! Not only is she unique looking but her moves and abilities are almost cat-like. She is a young girl, probably no more than two years old, and so full of love and life. She is good with other dogs after proper introductions; cats are still up for debate. Sasha is kennel trained and 90% house trained. Her previous owner let her roam the neighborhood then abandoned her when he thought she was pregnant. Luckily a neighbor took pity on her and got her off the streets. Unfortunately the neighbor couldn't keep and surrendered her to a shelter. When the shelter believed her to be pregnant, she was scheduled to be euthanized. Fate stepped in and Paw Patrol saved her beautiful soul. Needless to say, she was not pregnant. Sasha is heartworm negative, spayed, vaccinated, microchipped, and dewormed. Sasha is very active and agile so needs a fenced yard with lots of toys and room to run and play. She hasn't been tested with kids but her foster family thinks she will be ok with older kids that will play with her. She has learned so many manners since coming to us. Sasha sits and stays on command, waits to eat until told to do so, and goes to her kennel when told it is time for bed or her foster family needs to go out. As you can see, she loves to cuddle with her foster brother or chill out in the recliner. Also, after a long day of puppy playing, Sasha loves to cuddle with her favorite humans. Of all the things she can do, her cuddles are the best thing of all. Sasha's adoption fee is $175.

Meet Little Luna as she is affectionately referred to. We pulled this super scared little dog out of a shelter a few weeks ago. We believe she is 8-10 years old and a papillion/chihuahua mix. Luna has been staying with a very loving patient foster who has been working hard to bring Luna out of her shell. She has found that Luna loves to take a walk! She will easily walk a mile a day and would walk even more if she could. Luna has an extreme fear of hands coming towards her. She is currently working with our behavior consultant to help her work through her fears and bring this adorable little girl out of her shell. We do know Luna loves dogs and feels very comfortable with them. Luna will need to be adopted to a home with another dog. It is not suggested that Luna live in a home with small children as she does want to nip if someone tries to pet her when she's not ready. Luna is housetrained! She prefers to go outside and will hold it all night waiting to go outside.Update 6/8/17-Luna is officially up for adoption! Luna is doing well in her foster home. She has learned to enjoy being a dog. She runs in the yard, sniffs around, chews on bones, and likes to rub and wiggle on her back. She still does not play with dogs, toys, or people. She follows her foster mom everywhere and loves to be with her. She is happy to let her foster mom reach down and pet her. She is being taught sit and threshold control. She will get in the car willingly provided her foster mom is going along. She has learned to rest quietly and comfortably in her crate while her foster mom is gone or even if she is home. She is mostly house trained with the occasional accident on a rug, because she was trained with pee pads in her first foster home. A rug is the closest thing she can find to a pee pad. However, she still does not like to be picked up, she still does not enjoy being petted while being held, and she does not get on the furniture to sit with her people or snuggle with them. Luna does still get frightened and jumpy even with her foster mom. She’s recovering from this fear more quickly, but it is still there. She still stresses at new things but she is recovering faster than she used to. Luna does still have some separation anxiety from her foster mom. Although Luna is up for adoption she will not change homes easily. She will need to continue training and socializing for many months, a year, or possibly the rest of her life. If Luna does not receive this continued training and socializing she will regress back into her severe fearful state. Without this continued training & socializing, the confidence she has built will revert back to fear. She will be considered a special needs adoption. She will have added requirements for adopters to meet before being approved. Her adoption process will take added time and any applicants need to be prepared to be patient during the process. Luna’s requirements will be: • She will need a dog companion who is balanced, confident, socialized, and willing to allow her to snuggle with them. This is very important to Luna’s happiness. She needs the help of a confident dog to help her continue her personal growth and a buddy to sleep with. This buddy can be large, small, old, young, male or female. However, she will not tolerate a youthful dog trying to play with her. • Her adopters will need to be willing to get the professional help of a behavior consultant to learn how to continue her growth, if they are not able to help her. • Luna must be allowed to go outside to potty and not forced to potty in the house. Luna is mostly house trained and wants to potty outside. It is very upsetting to her to have to potty inside. If out of her crate she needs to go out every 3 hours, but will hold it in her crate up to 8 hours. • Luna cannot live in a home with children under the age of 12. When children or people visit they need to know not to try and pick her up, as she will try to bite or run away, when this happens. • Luna will need to wear a leash all of the time she is not in a crate. Reason being that her first instinct when scared is to run, no leash will make it difficult to catch her and she won’t return to you before she has bonded with you. Even in the home she can hide easily and if you have to “catch” her or “trap” her to get her you will only be adding to her fear of you. • Adopter’s will need plan to have at least 2-2 hour training sessions with Luna and her foster mom who is a trainer/behavior specialist at the foster mom’s home. She lives more than an hour SE of the Dayton area. • There will be two home visits arranged after Luna’s adoption to be sure that she is getting the help she needs. • Luna will require a fenced in yard. Adopters need to understand: • That she is not going to be happy being petted, picked up, or snuggling with humans for months, a year or possibly never. • That she does not respond to commands or listen very well and to expect this behavior until there is a strong bond between them and her. • That she will go through a lot of separation anxiety from being removed from her foster mom. • That all progress they have seen her make with her foster mom will most likely disappear when she is moved to a new home with new people. She most likely will regress almost back to the spot she began when entering the rescue. The only way to move past that is to work with her daily, for many hours of the day. Luna's adoption fee is $250 and you can fill out an application on our website at http://pawpatroldayton.com/adoptable-dogs/

Tucker is an approximately 10 year old Chihuahua, Rat Terrier mix. He is a fantastic little guy - he is pretty chill and loves to cuddle, but he also has a lot of energy left to play! He does great with other dogs and is friendly to everyone he meets. He is house and crate trained. When we pulled him from the shelter, a lot of his teeth were rotten, so we had dental work done for him and now he feels great! Tucker is neutered, heartworm negative, vaccinated, and microchipped. His adoption fee is $150 and you can fill out an application on our website at www.pawpatroldayton.com/adoptable-dogs.

Norman is a wonderful old man who came to us from the county shelter. He does have limited vision and hearing due to old age, but he can hear and see well enough to get around just fine. In addition, Norman does have arthritis and neuropathy in his rear legs. He can walk pretty well, but sometimes it takes him a minute to get up. However.....we have discovered a couple of wonderful things that help his condition immensely that his adopter will be required to continue after adoption - those include acupuncture and CBD hemp oil (glucosamine helps, as well). He is as sweet as they come and he LOVES belly rubs. He doesn't mind other dogs or cats, but he is a little too sophisticated and mature to play with them ;) Norman is listed as no small children because of his age and ailments we don't think small children is a good idea. Norman is neutered, heartworm negative, and will be vaccinated and microchipped upon his adoption. His adoption fee is $125 and you can fill out an application for him at www.pawpatroldayton.com/adoptable-dogs.

Brie is now 48 pounds and has lots of energy. She takes regular daily walks and loves to go “shopping” at the pet store. She loves being around other dogs and is much better about warming up to people than when we first got her. Still somewhat hesitant to meet at first but gets very curious when she is ignored!! She does very well in the house – no accidents, no chewing or interest in items that she hasn't been given. She very quickly accepted her designated area (the utility room) and goes there often when she is ready to nap. She is very comfortable outside – no excessive barking, no escape attempts, etc. She does take an herbal treatment for her neck pain. Vet says that will continue for the next few months. Other than that, she is happy, healthy, and learning all the perks of being an indoor, loved member of the family! She is now spayed, vaccinated, microchipped, and heartworm negative. She is a fantastic dog and will make a great dog for a loving family. Brie's adoption fee is $200 and you can fill out an application for her on our website at www.pawpatroldayton.com/adoptable-dogs.

Farrah is up for adoption at this time. She is not without issues but the progress we've seen in this short time gives us the impression that she will come around to be a great addition to the right family. Farrah is young, probably 2 or 3. She wants to play with other dogs. She will need a canine buddy who wants to have her around. She loves to be with dogs. Check out some of the great photos of her snuggling with her foster siblings. She's figuring out that the leash is not her enemy but rather the way to fun things like going outside, taking walks, and just getting more freedom in her foster home. She has been relaxing now that she's getting out more. Chewing on bones, rolling in the grass, and even enjoying a few pets with some patience from her foster. Farrah is house trained. She will bark and carry on that she needs to go outside. She will walk into her crate, prefers a crate a bit larger than she would normally need. Although she occasionally throws a fit in her crate she never messes in it. This is probably due to being live-trapped before entering the rescue. She does bark some in her crate during the day but at night she rarely makes a noise. When she does a simple no, or quiet, works to quiet her. I think she's just checking to see if you are still there. Farrah will need help to continue her rehabilitation. We probably should've called her Houdini as she seems to be skilled and determined to escape from what she sees as a trap. Farrah will need a fenced in yard as she is a bit of a runner if spooked. If you are interested in Farrah and are willing to help her continue to relax and trust please fill out an application at our website www.pawpatroldayton.com. Our adoption process begins with an approved application before meet-n-greets are scheduled. Farrah's adoption fee is $150.
